kurd fighters

Sadece iki günümüz var yaşamak için.
Bu günleri de aşağılık heriflerin önünde
diz çökerek geçirmeye değmez.

kürt çocuklarına özgür bir gelecek kuralım dedik, fakat baktık ki kürt çocukları özgürlük mücadelesi nin bizzat içindeler…
ve anladık ki kimse kimseye özgürlük vermez, ancak kendisi alır…

In the Middle East there are women who take up arms against terrorism and fanaticism. They say that from the mountains of Kurdistan comes the echo of their voices that make tremble any black flag that crosses their path. They talk about the incredible beauty of their long black hair braided and joy of see them dance before battle.

In the struggle of the Kurdish people they have created their own. And they send a clear message: No revolution has sense without Women. Because of course Kurdish women are sisters, wives and mothers but they are also warriors.

They are a symbol of courage and freedom. Life offered them two choices : resign or make clear what happens to all those who dare to question their worth on the battlefield.
